Hydrocarbons Releases System blank
  Hydrocarbons Logo Welcome to the Hydrocarbon Releases System The Hydrocarbon Releases Database System contains supplementary information, dating from 1 October 1992, on all offshore releases of hydrocarbons reported to the HSE Offshore Division (OSD) under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR), and prior offshore legislation.
  The attached graphs/tables (select button from menu bar) give an overview of the trends in the reporting of such incidents broken down by hydrocarbon type and by severity (i.e. whether major, significant or minor) and these are updated on a monthly basis.
  The severity classification definitions and criteria are described in detail in Help.
  Authorised users (see help for details) can log on to the Hydrocarbon Releases (HCR) System to enable search and other reporting facilities, including details of the associated offshore installations, systems and equipment population currently operating on the UK Continental Shelf.
